Ansalon now has a five (5) coin monetary system!!!
This will allow for more accurate costs on items, as well as a
lighter load to carry.
Platinum = pp = The rarest metal coin on Ansalon
Steel = st
Silver = sp
Gold = gp
Copper = cp
1 pp = 100 st = 10,000 sp = 1,000,000 gp = 100,000,000 cp
1 st = 100 sp = 10,000 gp = 1,000,000 cp
1 sp = 100 gp = 10,000 cp
1 gp = 100 cp
IE. A diamond that was worth 11,000 gp (110 st), is now 11,000 cp (110 gp)
A star diamond was worth 1,100,000 gp (11,000 st), now worth 1 st, 10
sp (1.1 st)
It's not a change of worth or cost, simply the denomination of
the coins. The old 'gold and steel' is now 'copper and gold' but
we have 3 more coins of incremental values of 100.
IE 1 Copper of the new money is worth 1 of todays gold.
1 Gold of the new money is worth 1 of todays steel.
1 Silver of the new money, is worth 100 of todays steel.
1 Steel of the new money, is worth 10,000 of todays steel.
1 Platinum of the new money, is worth 1 MILLION of todays steel.
So what this ends up doing you ask? A loaf of bread for 4 copper,
a sword for 6 gold (or 600 copper), a long range crossbow might
be 1 silver 2 gold (102 gold, or 10,200 copper).
2 coins was so 90's ;D
(Ps. I realize that 'in the books' DL has different values,
but those values did not translate into a very easily played
online game, so each became an increment of 100.)
